Tour of the Conservation Laboratories at Winterthur Museum

Date: Saturday, March 4 (snow date is March 11)
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Cost:$15 for dues-paying members and their guests
$20 for non-members and their guests
Location: Winterthur is located on Kennett Pike (DE 52), five miles north of I-95 Exit 7 (Wilmington) and five miles south of US 1.

Join us for a private insider tour of the Winterthur/University of Delaware Conservation Laboratories led by Professor Debra Hess Norris, Chair of the Arts Conservation Department at the University of Delaware. We will meet some of the graduate students and faculty engaged in conservation science and preservation of archeological and ethnographic objects, furniture, and paintings.

One painting that is being conserved and restored at the laboratory is the 1892 portrait of Winnie Davis, the youngest daughter of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. The portrait was hung above the mantle of his estate, Beauvoir. On August 29 thirty foot waves crashed over the highway separating Beauvoir from the Gulf destroying most of the estate and its contents. Students and faculty will show this and other works currently being treated. Their activities have recently been the subject of articles in the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Wilmington News Journal.

After the tour we will have reserved tables at the Winterthur Cafeteria in the Visitors Center for a la carte lunch. If you wish to visit the museum after lunch, tickets may be purchased there.

Directions to Winterthur can be found at http://www.winterthur.org/

Reservations are limited. Please register online at https://alum.mit.edu/smarTrans/user/Register.dyn?eventID=5175&groupID=158

Welcome to the Chaddsford Winery, widely acknowledged as one of the top east coast properties. Your journey will take you to the beautiful and historic Brandywine Valley in southeast Pennsylvania, where you will visit a renovated 17th century colonial barn that began its conversion to a small premium winery in 1982 when we carefully chose this part of the country to launch our newest wine venture.

At the beginning we produced just 3,000 cases and sold it all locally. Since then we've plugged along – fueled by our passion to make only the best and blessed by a magnificent micro-climate and a wealth of rave reviews – until today Chaddsford produces 30,000 cases of wine and sells it to a wider market from New York to D.C. and selected restaurants nationwide.

To register, please contact John Gavenonis at john.gavenonis@usa.dupont.com (preferred) or 302-999-5600. Reservations will be accepted until Friday, March 17, 2006.

For more information about the winery, and to find directions, please visit http://www.chaddsford.com/
